The best cinnamon-raisin homemade bread

Hey y’all, it’s tasty Tuesday again! Here’s another bread recipe I tried last time I baked bread. I decided on a whiff to make my own cinnamon-raisin sweet bread and improvised the ingredients…     To my upmost surprise, it came out amazingly great!  It tastes just like a great bakery bought cinnamon-raisin bread!  The flavour brought back memories of Sunday breakfasts I had when I was a child.  My mother used to buy two of these cinnamon-raisin bread, the ones wrapped in red plastic.  I could eat 4 or 5 of these toast as they were soooo good!

It’s Tasty Tuesday and this week I’d like to share this great recipe I came up with last week. As I was baking yet another batch of bread, I decided to mix things up a bit and create my own sweet chocolate-pecan bread. I was amazed by how tasty it was toasted with butter. In fact, It is so delicious that I ate it all in just 2 days…. Oops! So much for my “not eating too much bread for breakfast” diet. Here’s the recipe.

While I’ve been trying to bake my own bread for years, It’s only this year that I can say I truly succeeded. Bread being on the the most common food staple in the modern world, you’d think it’s easy to bake.  But it isn’t. My mother and grand-mother both baked bread.  It was the most delicious thing in the world and I remember eating the best Nutela toast during week-ends spent at my grandparents’ house, and the best homemade pizza at home.  My mother tried to pass along her technique, and even though I was sooo willing to learn, I failed.  Multiple times.  I watched her, amazed, but when I tried to repeat her process using her advice, it never turned out like her. Bread is so unique.  Multiple attempts, classes and years later, I finally found my own way of baking bread. The recipe I use comes from one of my favourite bread baking books.  You can find it here.  Most of the time I’ll use the classic french bread recipe, and then add my own twist, whether it is herbs, grains, nuts, cheese, or other types of flour. Here’s what the process looks like: 1 – I make the starter the day before I really want […]
